LMS 2017 Miracle of Christmas Project

The Lutheran Mission Society’s annual Miracle of Christmas project is underway, and we need your help to provide food, gifts, and the story of Christmas for over 150 families this year!

To donate, please click on the “Donate Now” button in the upper right-hand corner and designate “Miracle of Christmas.” Thank you . . . . . . . . . . . . 

How You can Help

Enjoy shopping?  

Consider adopting one (or more) of our families and filling a box for them.  Make it a family activity this year, or perhaps a service project for your group or congregation!   General donations of food and new gift items (with tags) are also needed.

Love to bake?

We include Christmas cookies in each box, and rely on your donations of baked cookies (needed at LMS headquarters by Thursday, Nov. 30th)

Have time to spare?

Adult volunteers are needed for Food Packing (Monday, Dec. 4) and Gift Packing (Monday, Dec. 11) events. Both of these events are at LMS Compassion Place headquarters located at 601 Hammonds Lane, Brooklyn Park, MD 21225 and run from 9:00 AM – 12:00 noon.

No time to spare?

Financial donations are also needed to ensure all of our families are provided for this Christmas. Click the “Donate Now” button to the right and designate “Miracle of Christmas.” Checks may be mailed to: Lutheran Mission Society, P.O. Box 438, Linthicum, MD 21090. Please memo your check: Miracle of Christmas.
